What is it?
It is a project to celebrate the successes of the Ketogenic diet.
By using a postcard, it is an opportunity to share our feelings, thoughts and views with others.
It is a way to help others who are considering using the diet, as they will be able to see the personal experiences of those of us who are actually involved with the diet.
It is not something that will offer any medical advice, but it will give recognition to those of us who want to say something about the diet.
And it is a way to have some creative fun!
Why do it?
To celebrate success.
The Ketogenic diet can have a fantastic, life-enhancing, effect on our lives. For me it has reduced the amount of seizures I have by 50%. I know a lot of other folk have had some success with the diet, and this project is about celebrating that success.
We want the project to recognize and share the success and the hope that the diet offers. In the simple form of postcards, we want to offer the world artwork, poetry, stories, collages and messages from people who actually gain benefit from the diet. We hope this will make this website a site for celebration, and also offer people who are considering the diet a view of our own personal experiences.
What should I do?
Get hold of a blank postcard. Then on the front of it you can draw, paint, make a collage, write a poem, write a story or a message, about something that the diet means for you. If you have a title for your postcard, you could put that on the front of your card, and if you want you might also include your first name. You can see some examples on the 'Postcard Gallery'.
If you can not put a postcard in the post then you can send an online postcard to firstname.lastname@example.org A postcard sent online can be put in the online gallery but not in a physical exhibition.
If you can contribute a physical postcard then you can send it to:
Keto Celebration Project
11 Raygarth Gardens
The subject could be anything about the diet, from what has actually happened for you, to your hopes and dreams of what it might offer you.
We ask that people limit their contribution to one postcard per person. This will give more people a better chance of their postcard being seen. It will also work better in a physical exhibition if each postcard is from a different person.
